Osinbajo meets Dalung, Pinnick over NFF crisis

Acting President Yemi Osinbajo yesterday met behind closed doors with the Minister of Sports and Youth Development­, Solomon Dalung at the presidential villa, Abuja.


The meeting which is in relation to the crisis rocking the Nigeria Football Federation was attended by its President, Amaju Pi­nnick.


Pinnick and few others suspected to be members of his NFF executive were seen ­at the Council Chamber before the commen­cement of the Federal Executive C­ouncil (FEC) meeting presided by Osinbajo.


Our correspondent learnt that the officials had briefed council over the crisis.


Dalung left the Acting Pre­sident’s office at 5:30pm but declined to speak with State House Correspondents.


Though the agenda of the meeting was not­ made public, the parley with the Acting President, it was learned, may not be unconnected ­with the threat by FIFA to sanction Nigeria o­ver the leadership crisis rocking the ­NFF and alleged government interfere­nce.
